Mr GREENE (RICHMOND, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Trade and Customs) .- I shall do so. It is perfectly clear, however, that limited coast-trade vessels of less than 300 tons could not very well have hospital accommodation.


Mr Tudor - I do not want that.


Mr GREENE (RICHMOND, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Trade and Customs) - No; but sub-section 2 of section 136 of the principal Act provides for mess-room accommodation. It is almost impossible to provide a separate mess-room on small coasting vessels. As the honorable member knows, they are generally run by the owner, who himself, is a seaman.


Mr Riley - They do not carry passengers.


Mr Tudor - Yes, they do.


Mr GREENE (RICHMOND, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Trade and Customs) - Very rarely. I shall look into the point raised, and see if it is possible to make any further provision.
